Rotated Drive Backup Repositories identified by what?

Post by sson » May 08, 2019 8:18 am

Hi Folks,

I've had to setup a Rotated Drive Backup Repository, I note that in logs it mentions that the drive letters have not changed.
On the particular machine the rotated drives are of the same Windows drive letter, I was wondering if this is OK (So basically wondering if Veeam identifies rotated disk by UUID or Data written to drive in backup repo or by Letter).

Cheers.

This is totally OK. Actually, it is required to keep the drive letter the same during the first switch. After the first backup to each drive is performed, Veeam B&R will follow the "known" drives regardless of the drive letter.
